The hotel not only charged me shortly after I made the booking in May, which they were not supposed to do, but when I cancelled in June they did not refund my money. So far, they are... More

So my experience was that the hotel was very noisy for a few hours at night but completely dead in the daytime. I had the enormous pool to myself for... More

Dear Khun Talltaff, Singapore First of all we have to say apologized for your inconvenience while stayed with us. For the Chinese groups, the hotel was never stood still for this event.
